The 2021 E/M documentation guidelines place a renewed emphasis on the assessment and plan – specifically, ensuring provider documentation if sufficient to properly credit diagnoses managed. Pay for performance programs also strongly emphasize clear patient management of conditions, and in the new world of documentation it’s critical to proper payment. In this session, we’ll look at chart documentation with an eye on the 2021 changes, but also share best practices for helping to efficiently create clear, concise and defendable documentation.
